The Old Water Tower[edit]

Lidköping's old water tower was built in 1899–1902 according to drawings by the architect Ernst Torulf. The tower is founded on 1,156 wooden piles that were driven into the mountain. The base plate was cast from concrete. The tower itself is built from Kinnekulle limestone from Råbäck's mechanical stonemasonry and was the company's largest order ever. The deliveries included 920 tons of limestone blocks, 670 square meters of nub stone, sun benches, mouldings, friezes, vaulting stone and some finer stonework. The tower was decommissioned in 1967, when a new water tower was completed in the Lidåker area.
